  2. To add to this Truehd cant be passthrough, its a bluray format, its decoded on players, some receivers can decode it but it cant be passed through, its a lossless format takes a lot on bandwidth

  6. My interpretation of his request is to adjust the increment "size" of the fwd/rwd jumps. ie: being able to define if a single tap on FWD would advance by 10s, 15s, 30s, or even just 5s per press. Right now, both Primary and backup players I believe is 10secs. With VLC on Android, I do not see any "adjustment" to even define what a "normal" jump period is. On the Windows and Mac versions of VLC there is an option to define it, if you go to "tools->preferences->hotkeys" at the bottom, select to show "All" settings, instead of "simple". Then scroll down to "interface->hotkey" settings, you will then see the definition of the jump length in seconds. For VOD and TV Series I tried a few external players (obviously android), and both VLC and HB players default to 10 seconds, and no option to adjust. Only player I saw an option to adjust is MX player pro, which under player/navigation settings, it defaults to 10 seconds, but allows you to adjust it to anything between 1 to 60 secs. So at least MX Player is an option for VOD/TV Series if someone wants to be able to adjust it. For adjusting it on liveTV/Catchup (internal primary and backup players), I guess that would be dependant on the player libraries used by Buzz. Assuming that the players even have the options available internally, and then for Buzz to "expose" them somewhere for user to be able to adjust if they want. But that would be a new feature addition.

  7. And like nbs mentioned, even the testers have not received it yet, so pointless in asking questions yet. When info is available for the general public, it will be posted.

  8. Did you read what DU said ? If it is seen as internal storage, then the enable of sharing will be able to browse that also. Other option if you want is to use a file manager (I use solid explorer, but there es file explorer, total commander, etc..) which have SMB support and can access you other network shares and you can initiate the copy from your U5 and copy from your remote share to your box. I do this all the time. But WHY copy locally ? The U5 has a gigabit connection, why not just stream directly from network instead of copying locally ? Even without setting up any plex or jellyfin server, you can use VLC and it will allow you to browse your local network. I just tried it even on my older 4900 and it saw all 5 of my currently active NAS servers without even a hesitation and was able to browse and stream.

  9. I apologize for the late response on this We looked into it atmos passthrough works fine.. truehd cant be passed through hdmi, bluray players decode it directly basically for atmos passthrough to work it needs to use EAC3 container. Which is what Disney+ uses for example.

  12. Do you have a 5.1 Surround system ? I believe it tries to do passthrough to a device that can decode it (so obviously it does not control volume if decoding is done elsewhere). If not, From home screen, go to Settings->Device Preferences->Display & Sound->Advanced sound settings->Select Formats, and select "None: Never use surround sound".

  13. That second backup, as much as it may "sound" useful, in reality it is often not. 99% of the time, when you perform a reset, it is to address some strange issues (strange behaviours and often due to corruptions or incompatibilities between apps). Doing a full backup, and then restoring it, you are just copying ever whatever crap caused the problem in the first place. The new backup method, backs up exactly what is important to most buzz users, which is the settings of the BuzzTV IPTV apps (server settings, and favorites), and it is not in any binary format, they are exported to a yaml file, which (similar to other markup languages) is ideal for configuration files, so it backs up just what is needed and not the cache files, binaries, orphaned files, etc.. which can be the source of the strange behaviours you are often trying to correct. 3rdparty apps that are complex to setup and configure, SHOULD have their own mechanism to export their configuration. A full backup should not be a substitute for the lack of 3rdparty devs not foreseeing and easy way to do a backup of their software settings. Just my view and opinion. I was also skeptical when the new backup mechanism was introduced since I was used to the old/full mechanism (old habits die hard), but after using both, I have realized that the full one, was really less useful. This new mechanism I use on many boxes and quite regularly.

  14. This message has to do with the weather widget that’s built into the BuzzTV 5 home screens. You will get that message on the Classic, Player 1 and 2 home screens, or weather not available on the Modern screen. Support@buzztv advised it will be addressed in an upcoming update.

  16. No, it is for LiveTV channels only. But only for HLS streams (so depends on your server capabilities). Power button definition can be controlled directly in the settings. You can configure the power button on remote to do a suspend, shutdown, or restart. By default I believe it is set to "suspend". But I always switch it to "shutdown". So pressing the power button, initiates a proper shutdown.

  17. Right now,the latest public version of BuzzTV is version 5. So the answers below reflect that. BuzzTV 6, will be released relatively soon, with the introduction of the X5 SS, and the P6 powerstation, and some of the answers below may change. 1. Yes it does, options are under the BuzzTV Utilities and give you details choices for enabling it under LiveTV, VOD/TV Series and PVR recordings. Also has some other advance settings (for 3rd party apps). 2. Buffer settings, allow you to choose between 1 to 10 seconds on LiveTV. There a "RealTime streaming" (RTS) option, which can buffer up to one minute ahead on HLS streams only. And with RTS enabled you can also FFWD to skip to the fastest available part of the stream. 3. You can add dozens of portals. But you need to switch between them on BuzzTV 5. 4. This is an option that can be set in the configuration menu (Start Live TV on Boot). And I know it works, since I do that on my mom's box. 5. Standby is standby, so no, there are no boot scripts launched when coming out of standby, so the answer is no. Either way, after having used 100s of boxes over the years, I have learned to prefer the complete shutdown of the box when not using it. Suspend/standby tends to cause issues over time on most boxes. Memory leaks, poor OEM drivers, and other issues tend to accumulate over time when always using suspend/standby mode. Hence I prefer taking the extra minute to properly do a clean boot every time, instead of throwing the dice, and then wondering if glitches, hiccups, micro-freezes, etc.. are due to my server, my box, my ISP, etc.. This way, I know the box is at least fresh boot every time. And for 1 extra minute, it is not a killer.

  22. First of all, something is not normal with your box slowing down on large files. I have easily streamed 50GB BluRay rips (with a dozen or so included soundtracks and dozens of subtitle tracks encoded in the mkv), without an issue in the past directly from my Synology RS2418+ NAS, and from my smaller DS1817+. Secondly why are you so stuck on trying to get the U5 drive visible on windows ? Why don't you just use a file manager on the U5, and do it the opposite way around like I mentioned previously. Solid explorer, ES File explorer, Total Commander just to name a few are Android file managers which support SMB and can see windows file shares. Find the window share, select the movies you want, and copy them over to your attached storage. Not complicated really.

  24. Once you plug a USB drive into any Buzz, you can launch VLC and you can then scroll down to the external device, and locate the media file that is on it and play it. I do it all the time on my mom's box.

  30. If the controller is registered as a device and Steam Link app doesn’t seem to recognize it, it is NOT the box that is the problem. Steam link app is the issue. And don't expect any updates for the hardware. The 4900 is an older box (on Android 9), but it is a great box for IPTV (what it was intended for). The 5 series boxes are on Android 11, and just around the corner are the new Android 13 boxes which were recently announced.

  32. WiFi or wired ? If it is WiFi, can you test with Wire ? Could be router getting overwhelmed and not the U5. I gave up on plex a little while ago. Every version brought a new bug which annoyed me. I have my video library on my Synology and just use DS Video. But in this case, since you tried streaming using VLC, I don't think it is a plex issue. I'm assuming no transcoding is enabled on the plex server ? Does it do this with h.264 encoded media also ? Have you tried to use a file browser (lie ES File explorer, solid explorer, total commander, etc..) which has SMB support, to try to copy the file from your file server over to the U5, to see if it can do so in a stable manner without slowdowns ? There are quite a few variables and you need to divide and isolate them one by one. File server, network (wifi vs wired), router, plex server config, etc.. Does your equipment support 5.1 surround ? Have you tried with media that does NOT have 5.1 audio (just stereo) ? If your setup does not support 5.1 audio, try disabling the auto detection.. From Home screen, Settings->Device preferences->Display and Sound->Advance sound settings->Select formats (and select "none: never use surround sound").

  36. On your Modern screen, I don't know if that is some reflection, but you seem to have applied a background image. If that is what you want to fix, then From Home Screen->Settings, and then go over the "BG Image" button, and long press, to remove the background image.

  43. One of the best features Buzz added. Makes it so much easier when setting up a box. Future improvement would be nice if they show you the current servers and allow you to select one and edit it. It can be done manually if you know the index and alter the URL manually, but would be nice if they had a small UI for it. But that is just a "nice to have"

  44. make sure your box and pc/phone are connected to same network then go to server settings on your box. looks at the IP address on top right corner. enter that IP address with port on your browser then fill up server info and you can add like that as many servers you want to.

  46. Agreed, forgot about that one, since I never had one But the 3900 also used a 5v,3A power adapter instead of the usual 5V,2A on other boxes. So "technically"if they needed 12V for the sata connector (assuming it was actually wired for 12V), they have a little more current to allow some up-converting to get the 12V. But obviously I did not design the boxes, nor open them up to investigate how it was done. I am just "assuming". Bottom line is, make sure you are using the power adapter that came with your specific box, or at least something of the same voltage, and at least the same amount of "A".

  47. Now you know what I asked if youtube was working Do yourself a favor. Change the "powerkey definition" to shutdown, instead of "suspend" (if I recall, from home screen, go to settings->more settings->powerkey definition). Yes it takes an extra minute to power up, but at least it is a clean boot all the time. not just waking up from a suspended state.

  48. Pretty sure it does NOT auto reboot. It comes back to the menu after it erases and formats the various partitions. You need to select the reboot option. So before selecting reboot, I just wipe the param partition before rebooting. But like I said, I am pretty sure that is already part of the "Factory reset". It is just a habit from an old box that would not do it on an older version of android.

  50. The more i learn all the features and get used to my U5, the more i love it. This is a terrific Streaming box. Even after i buy your newest tech, i will keep the U5 as my standby. At first it was nothing but headaches because i'm a tech idiot. But once i figured out what the hell i was doing, i fell in love with the box. I have forgotten my XRS4500 and my Firestick4k.
